Karlka Developments is a 100% Aboriginal-owned company. It is the business arm of Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal Corporation and it is also holding company to a few other subsidiary companies, such as Karlka Facilities Management Pty. Ltd. and Karlka Workforce Pty. Ltd.
Karlka Developments was created in 2012 with the purpose of generating reliable income for the future generations of Nyiyaparli people, away from the mining royalties and the group’s current sources of income.
In the few years that the business has been operating for, Karlka Developments has managed to create a solid reputation for itself, away from the stigmas that many Australian Aboriginal businesses face, by building successful relationships and partnerships with very reputable Australian businesses. We are proud to be recognised for our achievements, but we strive to continue improving in the years to come.
It is also our goal to play an active role in the improvement of many social issues and aspects Nyiyaparli people face by creating employment opportunities and generating social outcomes which will have a direct positive effect in improving the lives of our people.
Karlka Developments is based in Port Hedland, Western Australia, and is managed by a Board of six Nyiyaparli Directors who meet regularly to discuss and oversee the company’s activities and who are also in charge of the company’s decision making process. There is also a small team of KD employees based in Port Hedland.
